YOUR FUTURE SELF THANKS YOU

TOM CLIFTON CO-FOUNDER, ANIMOTO ST. CATHERINE’S COLLEGE, UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD, 2001

“Study abroad gave me self-confidence for sure, but also, the ability to confront and assimilate other cultures, ideas and ways of thinking. Almost every job demands social skills, adaptation, self-awareness and the fortitude to withstand fluctuating environments. Studying abroad helps with all of these. It teaches you the skills of building trust and friendships, listening and comprehending and communicating effectively with people who don’t always understand you.”

FUTURE-FOCUSED STUDY ABROAD More than just an opportunity to see the world, our programs integrate critical lifelong skills designed to help you achieve your goals. This is the essence of Future-Focused Study Abroad. IFSA-Butler offers more than 100 dynamic study abroad programs in 53 cities across the globe. Comprehensive academic, personal and logistical support allows our students to focus on making the most of the experience. Through our local staff experts, our students develop insider knowledge of the local community. Internships, directed research options, volunteer opportunities, community-based learning and our signature Exploring Community & Culture course all facilitate critical skill development. Many of our programs are based at preeminent institutions abroad offering direct access to academic departments distinguished as leaders in their respective disciplines, while other programs offer IFSA-Butler courses taught by local experts. All programs are structured to engage students and promote growth. The choice to study abroad is one of the best decisions you can make. You are sure to thank yourself for the opportunity to interact with another culture and learn about yourself in the process.

BEYOND THE CLASSROOM

INTERNSHIPS ABROAD Immerse yourself in the professional culture of another country while establishing an international network of colleagues and demonstrating your ability to navigate a global, multicultural business world.

In today’s competitive job market, every ounce of experience counts. You can maximize your study abroad adventure by combining classroom work with directed research, communitybased learning, volunteering or an internship. These opportunities will give you even greater exposure to your host community, enhance your intercultural skills and look great on a resume!

DIRECTED RESEARCH With the help of a faculty guide, you will create a research project that will serve as a tangible and meaningful product that showcases your commitment to your academic topic.

COMMUNITY-BASED LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES Community-based learning opportunities carry academic credit while providing a chance for active involvement in your host community.

AFFORD YOUR JOURNEY FINANCIAL AID

We believe that study abroad is within reach for every student, so we’re committed to helping you identify funding sources. We can assist you with your financial aid transfer, and we offer a wide range of scholarships and grants to help defray the cost of studying abroad.

Many students don’t realize that financial aid can help pay for study abroad. Pell Grants, Stafford Loans and PLUS loans can apply to your IFSA-Butler program. College grants and scholarships, Perkins Loans, state grants and loans, and 529 plans may also be used for study abroad, but you’ll need to ask your home campus financial aid office about their policies for transferring these types of aid.

VETERANS BENEFITS

If you are a recipient of the Post 9/11 GI Bill, you may use your tuition benefits for study abroad. This process can differ among U.S. colleges and universities, so you will want to start the conversation early with your home campus study abroad office to determine the best billing procedure for your institution.

WORK-TO-STUDY GRANT PROGRAM

Gain some work experience and earn spending money while you are abroad! With the Work-to-Study grant, students complete projects for IFSA-Butler in exchange for a stipend between $300 and $1,000, depending on the scope and involvement of the projects completed. These grant opportunities are available to all students, with special consideration to those already on federal work study at their home campus. Work-to-Study positions are determined by current and frequently changing project needs at IFSA-Butler, but could include: • Marketing and communications • Graphic design • Photography and videography • Peer advising • Research • Creative writing

SCHOLARSHIPS Scholarships are available to any student enrolled in a summer, semester, or full year IFSA-Butler or Alliance program. See our complete list and full details online at www.ifsa-butler.org/scholarships.

Welcome to China! Alive with tradition, innovation, artistic heritage and rapid modernization, this country promises an intense and unforgettable study abroad experience.

With a growing population, rising lifestyle expectations and continuing industrial production, Shanghai is ideal for students to immerse themselves in Chinese language and society, study currents of international trade and finance or explore questions of sustainability and urbanization.

Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is one of Central Europe’s oldest gems, but also one of its rising stars. Home to innovation, art and creativity, Prague is the gateway to the “new Europe” within the Czech Republic and neighboring Germany and Austria. The city’s train stations, bus networks and airport make Prague an ideal base from which to explore Europe, though with a plethora of cafes, cathedrals and museums, there is no shortage of local wonders to experience. Prague has an excellent public transportation system that links together diverse neighborhoods and allows students to transverse the city with ease. As a nation that has successfully transitioned from communist rule to a stable democratic government, the Czech Republic stands out as a modern political and economic success story in Central Europe.

Welcome to our programmes in England. We are thrilled you have chosen England as the site of your study abroad experience and are confident you will all enjoy the unique challenges and pleasures of negotiating the cultural differences which exist between our countries. We may share (sometimes distantly) a common tongue, but we hope you will discover much that will excite and confuse, delight and challenge. From the exciting urban expanse that is London to the charm of Cambridge, from our much maligned weather to our pub culture — England has it all. No matter what your interests or passions, the staff in the London office are here to aid, abet, mentor and help you achieve the best from your time on the other side of the “pond.” Long may the “Special Relationship” continue. Sincerely, Lynne Alvarez, Senior Resident Director, England Programs and all the IFSA-Butler staff in England Andrew Williams, Senior Resident Director, Oxford and Wales Programmes

Baruch haba! Welcome to Israel! Ours is one of the most intriguing countries and cultures in the world, and it’s also a great place for study abroad. Israel has it all: terrific weather, friendly people, amazing food and a unique culture not found anywhere else in the world. Best of all, modern Israel is a splendid mixture of ancient and new. The world’s three major monotheistic religions have their heart in Jerusalem, so history and faith abound from all corners. At the same time, however, twenty-first century Israel is as contemporary and developed as any European or North American society.

Our program is based in Jerusalem. Here you’ll live alongside students from around the world and study in one of the world’s most prestigious universities. Come, and experience the magic of Israel. Shalom!

MEXICO

Language and Cultural Studies in the Yucatán Medical Spanish and Public Health in the Yucatán

MÉRIDA The capital and largest city of Yucatán, Mérida lies in sharp contrast to many Americans’ stereotypes about Mexican cities. The city is compact and tranquil, yet also a cosmopolitan center of culture in southern Mexico. It’s also famed for having a relaxed attitude and student-friendly atmosphere. Colonial Spanish architecture adds to Mérida’s beauty and personifies the city’s long history, while a thriving Mayan influence shows in the local language and dress. In your spare time, take advantage of free evening concerts and Mérida’s exciting nightlife.

WELCOME

FROM OUR RESIDENT DIRECTOR

Mérida, also known as “La Ciudad Blanca” because of the widespread use of white limestone and paint, is one of the safest cities in Latin America and holds the distinction of having the lowest crime rate in Mexico.

It is a living laboratory of ancient cultures still present today through architecture, language and amazing cuisine with contemporary Mérida as a lively center. The city’s combination of the great Mayan civilization with Spanish colonial traces will transport you to a time and place difficult to imagine until you experience it. This program will allow you to change the single story of Mexico. Through different experiences, courses, faculty, friends, local families, travel and exposure to life here, you will be able to challenge old myths, break stereotypes and redefine identities. You will go from being a tourist to becoming a traveler; from seeing to observing and from being a bystander to making connections. IFSA-Butler will make sure you are exposed to the best cultural and academic offerings for the summer and also give you the opportunity to experience diversity firsthand by contrasting some of the world’s famous archaeological sites with cities as amazing as Mexico City, Chiapas and Havana, Cuba. We cannot wait to show you all this! Sincerely, Diana Arízaga, Resident Director and all the IFSA-Butler staff in Mexico
